Minions Nail Art Tutorial

6:00 AM

If you know me, you know that I LOVE (said in the most Agnus “it’s so fluffy” way possible) minions.  I don’t have a favorite one however my favorite part of the second Despicable Me was “Bee doe, bee doe, bee doe.”  With this nail art tutorial I decided to paint some minions on my nails.  It’s the easiest design I’ve done besides just painting a solid color.

Start off my painting the maximum shield on top of your nails.  After that dries paint your nails yellow.  I used Sally Hansen’s Mellow Yellow.

Now it’s time to add the minions overalls.  Take a blue color, I used OPI and paint it on a little bit less than half of the nail if your nails are long like mine.  If they are short you might have to make the blue a lot less smaller or just leave the blue out.  You may have to put on two coats of this.  Just make sure all nail polish has dried so it’s not a goopy mess.

Now time to put the first part of their goggles, the black band.  This you can either use a nail pen for or you can free hand it like I did.  It saved me time because the pen was not making the line thick enough.
The next step I had to improvise.  I didn’t have a gray or silver polish so I got a little creative (ok, maybe not really) and mixed black with white polish.  You have to be extremely careful that the two colors don’t touch that the nail polish just falls into each other.  I used a cotton swab stick to make perfect circles for the goggles.  You just have to take the cotton off the tip of it.  You can decide whether you want two eyes or one on each nail.

Afterwards you have to fill the eyes with white and then a small black dot for the pupil.
Once you’ve finished all of that you can start adding the hair and the mouth for each finger.  Get creative and do whatever you feel like. 

The last step is to let your nails fully dry and add the top coat.  Now you’re done!
